General Motors is returning to Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction in March with two special vehicles that will be offered for sale with the proceeds going to charity. At the auction, GM will be offering the first 2020 Corvette Convertible produced as well as the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition VIN 001.
“We are excited to be partnering with General Motors again as they auction two of their most historic and coveted halo vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The recently introduced GMC HUMMER EV and the mid-engine Corvette represent the cutting-edge technology and design being forged by the American automaker today. The sale of these two vehicles is destined to be among the most anticipated auctions of this year.”
The first 2020 Corvette Convertible produced wears VIN #7060 and was likely produced in early August 2020 when retail converitible production started. Wearing a Black exterior, the hardtop convertible features the Z51 Performance Package and comes nicely optioned with 3LT package that includes Black/Adrenaline Red GT2 seats, red seatbelts, and red stitching. Also included is the three-piece aero kit consisting of a front splitter and two side rocker panels. The United Way for Southeastern Michigan will receive the entire sale price from the auction of the Stingray Convertible.
The GMC Hummer EV VIN 001 is the new all-electric supertruck with the iconic nameplate. Thanks to the next-gen three-motor e4WD Electric Vehicle (EV) propulsion technology, the Hummer EV is capable of 1,000 horsepower with an estimated 0-60 mph time in approximately three seconds. Standard features include CrabWalk, 4-Wheel Steer, Adaptive Air Suspension and the Extreme Off-Road Package featuring 18-inch wheels, 35-inch OD Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody armor, rock sliders, underbody cameras and an industry-leading Infinity Roof with removable transparent Sky Panels. The sale of the first Hummer EV will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
“The sale of these remarkable GM vehicles is an important part of our effort to support some very worthwhile charities,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The thrill of being the winning bidder for either one of these collectible vehicles will only be sweetened by the fact that 100 percent of the hammer price will go to benefit our nation’s veterans, as well as families in need across Southeastern Michigan.”
The first 2020 Corvette Stingray with VIN 001 was a Z51 Coupe that was also finished in Black. That car raised $3 million for charity when it was sold at Barrett-Jackson’s 2019 Scottsdale auction. That buyer was Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick whose personal collection has a number of VIN 001 Corvettes purchased at auction over the years.
General Motors first teamed up with Barrett-Jackson in 2004 to offer a number of new and historic vehicles for sale at auction and over the years they have raised more than $24 million for charity.
Barrett-Jackson rescheduled the annual Scottsdale auction to March 20-27th. Visit www.barett-jackson.com for details and to view the initial docket.
